First off.. I know I'm new around here, and I just want you guys to know I love my Phins just as much as the next guy.
I can't help but thinking, though, as I look back on the last 2 weeks is that both games were winnable by the other team in the final minutes of the game.
This is where our ultra conservative offense concerns me right now.
We can't expect to win a ton of games by defense alone. We have to be willing to put up points. So far, we've played a good position battle and our offense has shown all the capability of 'opening it up' but hasn't. I don't believe they simply suck. I believe we're playing 'small ball'.
We're 2-0, that's really awesome and encouraging (especially our defense) but we MUST open it up with our next lot of opponents.
It's time for our offense to shine.
I agree! For some reason we treat every lead as though it is insurmountable. We were so content to make a first down or two and then punt this past week with only a 7-0 lead.
